BMZ now also manufactures especially light-weight and durable lithium iron phosphate based motorcycle batteries

(PresseBox) (Karlstein, ) The LBP5500 "Lithium Bike Power" battery from BMZ Batterien-Montage-Zentrum weighs just 2 pounds (900 grams). This battery, specifically designed for powerful motorbikes and quads, has small dimensions of only 95 mm x 80 mm x 80 mm and a rated capacity / voltage of 5500 mAh / 13.2 V.

The LBP5500 battery has a maximum impulse discharge current of 350 A and a maximum continuous discharge current of 300 A. Thanks to state-of-the-art lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) technology, the highly safe LBP5500 battery is ideally suited for use in powerful sports vehicles with 2- or 4-cylinder motors up to 1500 cc capacity.

Despite its high performance capability, the LBP5500 battery can be fully charged within 45 minutes at a charge current of 7.5 amps. For 90 percent of the rated capacity, 15 minutes at a charge current of 20 amps is sufficient. The LBP5500 battery has substantially reduced charge times as compared to the usual 7 to 14 hours for conventional lead acid batteries.

Due to the non-existent memory effects of lithium batteries and the balanced regular discharge/charge of all cells, the LBP5500 battery provides reliable starter service life for up to 10 years. The operating temperature of the LBP5500 battery is specified at -10°C to +50°C. Furthermore, due to its extremely low self-discharge rate of less than 3 percent per year, if the battery is not needed over a long period of time it can be stored for several years at temperatures between -20°C and +70°C without quality losses.

The LBP5500 "Lithium Bike Power" battery, which conforms to Directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS), is available exclusively through authorized dealers.
